Understanding Oregon Property Taxes

Overview of Oregon Taxes

Oregon collects a total of $43,649,518,000 in revenue every year. Of that, $6,165,885,000 comes from property taxes, or 14.1% of total revenue. As a result, Oregon has the 25th highest property tax rate in the country, which is 3.7% less than the national average of 1.06%. Generally speaking, states where property taxes make up a higher percentage of total state revenue have higher property tax rates, and states where property taxes make up a smaller percentage of state revenue have lower property tax rates.

How does this translate to what homeowners actually pay? The average home value across Oregon is $268,892, meaning the average Oregon homeowner pays 1.03% of their home value every year in property taxes, or $10.25 for every $1,000 in home value.

Property Tax Calendar

Oregon property tax appeals, which allow homeowners to contest the assessment, starts November 15. The date which property tax bills become due on is November 15, Feburary 15, and May 15.
